The Last Unicorn

It is with some embarassment that I admit that I don't actually remember one way or the other if I ever read the Last Unicorn. I would know if I looked through it or read it again, of course. I know how important a book it is to many of my friends.

The reason I mention it? Here are some of the creature designs for the forthcoming movie, if you're interested.

I hope they remember to mention that Schmendrick is supposed to be immortal in *this* movie, and how that happens to be a major portion of the plot.

However, other than that blatant error, I do like the old movie and don't know how I feel about a new one being made.

I never saw the first movie. If it's available on dvd (somehow, it seems like something only available on vhs) I could try renting it.

wow, I still own the VHS copy I made when I was 10. Maybe someday, I'll be able to hawk it for millions of dollars.

*back in reality*

Yawn.

With the slew of good books being made into decent movies recently, I'm tempted to get my hopes up...but I'm not holding my breath. The voice casting seems to be fairly good, Christopher Lee is spot on. Dunno what to think.

It's a wonderful book, and I higly recommend it, but as far as I know, it's out of print. The movie may spur a reprint, which would be a good thing for Mr. Beagle.

The Last Unicorn
I'm bothered by this because I might have read it. Seeing the locations and character names listed, I have a visual memory in my head, as if bits and pieces of scenes are in it. And it's not because I've seen the older movie. I know I haven't seen that.

You should read it. I haven't read it in years, but when I was little animated version was my favorite film. I'm a bit apprehensive about the upcoming film...
